We are thinking about booking a cruise on the Diamond next May, one-way from L.A. to Vancouver. Any suggestion for the return? I've checked several rental car websites but haven't had much luck. Do they rent in Canada for drop-off in LA? Maybe it's just too soon for them to have any info? Also thought about taking the Amtrak back. Any feedback would be appreciated.....
Amtrak is a possibility. 2 days and a possible train change along the way (San Francisco). 1st class is nice - sleeper car. Also, check out the one-way fares from Vancouver on Alaska Air or look into taking the shuttle (bus or train) from Vancouver to Seattle and then catching a Southwest flight from Seattle.
Good luck - and Welcome to Vancouver / Bienvenue a Vancouver.
We have done Amtrak from Vancouver to LA and loved it. Amtrak will bus you from Vancouver to Seattle in the morning. The train leaves Seattle around 9:00am. We had a bedroom that included all meals in the dining room. Two days, one night and did not have to switch trains.
